Every day, the Lopez Island Family Resource Center (LIFRC) is a busy hub with a wide range of activities and programs. It might be helping 450 individuals with basic needs such as rental and utility assistance; making sure 300 individuals gets healthy fresh food from the Lopez Fresh foodbank; providing play therapy for 20 preschool children; matching adult mentors with 22 youth who spend time together weekly; offering over 100 summer workshops to assure 379 kids (with 74 scholarships) have positive learning opportunities over the summer, and much, much more.
None of these programs would be possible without the generous support of United Way San Juan County. United Way is one of very few funding sources that help support staff and operations which is essential to running all these programs.
One of the special and unique things about Lopez is the way the community works together to help each other since many devoted volunteers and a dedicated, caring staff work together to make these programs possible. Lots of helping hands and compassionate hearts are working together to make a difference:
United Way is an important part of making this work happen. Please consider starting or continuing a payroll deduction through your company to help support this important work – you will have a big impact on many lives when you do. We appreciate all the generous support everyone provides the Lopez Island Family Resource Center.
